“I've been at home with flu-like symptoms for a number of days now.. It is most probably the coronavirus,” he wrote. “I've lost my sense of smell and taste and it's been like a dose of flu.”
Fans shouldn't worry too much as O'Brien also said he's “in good spirits and getting better.” He did let fans know he hasn't been tested for coronavirus as “it's not readily available and I also think the tests are more important and valuable for the vulnerable in our community.”
He ended his note saying: “I'm expecting a full recovery, and am of course self-isolating.. Take care of yourselves and one another.”
Just six days ago, the guitarist took to Instagram to send well wishes to everyone across the globe and especially to those with the virus.
“Just want to send you love and strength ... particularly all those who have the virus and those who have loved ones with it... Also huge love to all our health workers on the front line .. they always do an incredible job and even more so now,” he wrote at the time.
EoB's debut solo album is still expected to arrive next month on April 17.
